. in 2002 under the employee initiative the centers for medicare and medicaid services began publicly reporting quality information on nursing-home nationally on their web site. this was followed a year later by a similar effort in the home health arena. simultaneously there have been demonstration products by medicare in home house and skilled nursing facilities. state medicaid agencies have begun experimenting with a for performance in the nursing-home setting. the question is how these current market-based reforms address these broad goals of long-term care. in theory these reforms are perfectly compatible with these goals of improving quality of life and reducing fragmentation and increasing community-based services but there are several key attributes of these market-based reforms that may limit their effectiveness in this regard. the first limitation is current market-based reforms tend to rely on narrowly defined clinical quality measures. this tends to reinforce a medical model of care which pays more attention to clinical quality than issues related to quality of life and a c

for taking my call. the so-called reduction in medicare that the republicans more or less talk about on a regular basis is really -- is it information or misinformation about the program, either the senate or the house of representatives bill, are they going to really reduce the amount of money into medicare to pay for this plan? and also the public option, why is it that they are not wanting to really fight for the public option? it seems to me that that would be a good way to go and if people are purchasing insurance, you know, they're responsible for reading the policy and knowing what coverage they have and, you know, it's just like taking out a loan. if you don't read the fine print and you sign on the dotted line, you're responsible. because it's a contract. andity think the republicans are just fear mongering and trying to kill the bill simply because of the input of the lobbyists from the insurance, you know, the big corporations. host: thanks for your call. guest: a comment on the medicare question briefly. the pieces in the health legislation that would reduce costs under m

spending. that means medicare, medicaid, social security, especially as the baby boom population retires. those numbers are will go right on you. this commission idea was intended to get at those entitlements and to get at the tax revenue to help close that gap of one third. and in order to be effective, it needed teeth. what the congress did today was to take the teeth out of it. that is not only a setback here, but will cause a lot of our foreign creditors to question are we going to pay our bills, or will we be forced to start raising interest rates? that would be very dangerous indeed. >> yeah, because the only other option is to raise taxes. there's not a great appetite to do that. if you're not going after the social security, medicare, medicaid or defense spending, which is sort of eliminated, that's where most of the money is. >> that's what willie sutton would say. he would have to go after entitlements, because that's where the money is, and that's why you rob banks, as he said, that's where the money was. i must tell you, on the eve of the president's state of the union addres
companies, insurance companies in this country, why can we not lower the medicare age. the president and nancy pelosi, harry reid, wire they doing backroom deals? i am not saying that all of the ideas on one side or the other are correct, they are not. but there are incremental things that to be done. if the democrats continue to do backroom deals, how will we ever get anything done? i am optimistic that the president finally got out there on friday. if he can do that, nancy pelosi -- whose family is from maryland -- host: father was the mayor of baltimore. caller: there is no working together. there's a lack of bipartisanship. host: "i am positive that wall street will steal more money from the workers and that obama will do nothing about it. our next caller is calling on the pessimistic line. caller: he sounded very pessimistic recently. there are many, as it was told in massachusetts. 150,000 people were on the rolls. my mother lived in tucson, ariz., and moved to california, now working in nevada. i received an early ballot like my niece, and she voted in nevada. everyone that sa
. when democratic leaders told the cbo they would raise taxes and cut medicare the cbo said that course of action would reduce the deficit by $132 billion. critics, however, are extremely sceptical. >> there are a number of things that make that i am plausibl ma. if you take that out of the equation it goes from being a small deficit reducer to a deficit increaser. >> that's known as the doctor fix and that alone would put the bill in the red. trace: the so-called doctor fix is a long standing issue. why isn't it in the healthcare reform bill. >> several reasons. it costs too much. this is an effort to undo one of congress' previous effort to reduce medicare spending. they worry cutting payments to doctor who treat medicare patients will reduce their access to care, not to mention getting lawmakers thrown out of congress. it was in the house and senate bills. fixing it would cost $200 billion over 10 years so they took it out. they still plan to do it, but won't pay for it. >> eventually you will have to do something that's longer term and the question is how will that be financed or li
people get what they pay for, strengthening medicare, making sure we're lowering health care costs for small businesses and individuals. we're going to make sure we move forward on a jobs bill, financial services reform, holding the banks accountable, all of the things that need to get done. but right now, given the rules of the senate, they can actually stop everything. and so we'll see. we will see. and i am -- all i can say is i'm hopeful that colleagues that we've been able to work with in the past will come forward and work with us. because too many people in this country are hurting. and we're going to continue to fight for them. and i have to tell you, coming from the great state of michigan, nobody is hurting more than the folks in my state. and i'm going to continue to fight for that agenda for them. and, hopefully, we're going to be able to move this forward. >> democratic senator debbie stabenow of michigan, thank you for your time tonight. i appreciate your optimism about the republicans potentially turning around on this. if they don't, we'd love to have you back for c

[applause] >> well, thank you everyone for your remarks. i want to open it up to questions from the audience. at first i just want to ask a few myself. and the first is, that it seems like both in vietnam and in the united states, this is sort of
security and medicare, that are just steaming along. these are the more politically popular domestic programs. the point of this, when you talk to senior officials, this president wants to get serious about fiscal discipline, he's heard all the criticism about washington spending so much money. we're told that the state of the union address is going to have a lot on fiscal discipline. the president clearly trying to burnish his credentials on that. mixed reaction i'm getting from republicans, some saying they can work with the president on this. others saying it's just a fraction of the federal debt right now and really not going to be enough. the big problem for this president is going to be very senior democrats on the hill don't want their power of the purse taken away. i'm already talking to top democratic aides on the hill saying the president is going to face some real opposition, because there's going to be some really popular programs that liberals will not want to cut. >> stand by. gloria borger is here. do i hear echoes, gloria, of the president saying, in effect, the era o
